Temptation - KP Yohannan - Gospel for Asia

The line is thrown
with the bait on the hook
by the fishermen
to catch a fish.

The hook and the bait
are custom made
for the kind of fish
he wants to trap.

There is pleasure in sin
for a season at least
if you go for the pleasure
you are caught with a hook.

Temptation is the bait
demons cast
death awaits you—
flee for life.
